The project, valued at about $3.1million, started its nine-month construction on January 3 and is expected to be completed by October 2, according to information posted on the Ministry of Defence’s website yesterday.

The two-storey building will have a floor area of 2,324 square metres and equipped with a fire suppression and alarm system, closed circuit television (CCTV), and a public address system.

The engineering consultant engaged for the project is Jumin Marsal Perunding and the main contractor is Unicorp Sdn Bhd.
